49 Blackbelly Sheep at Wooden Fence in Saint Andrew Parish, Barbados

When these four critters rushed up to the wooden fence to have their picture taken, I assumed they were goats. In fact, they are female Barbados blackbelly sheep. The species has evolved on the island from African ancestors since the mid-1600s. This small breed is raised on family farms for their lean meat. They have hair instead of wool so they are ideally suited to the hot Caribbean climate.
